  2. OWA App Update

    I'm awaiting a time-critical email and am being prevented from downloading or viewing emails as OWA has decided that it must do an App update. Microsoft, if you read this, users would like a choice as to when updates are delivered. Some places and times are better than others. Possible reasons you've not considered are but I will happy make you aware of them; when working (and the user doesn't want to have to wait), or when in a poor connectivity area (and any update it likely to take a while.) Microsoft have been around long enough to know about…

  3. Remove this app

    Why is this even in the App Store anymore? All it's doing is causing confusion for my customers.

  6. Option to disable "Highlight and Quote" in OWA in Office 365

    It would be great to have an opportunity to switch "Highlight and Quote" on/off. I really don't like this feature. So why should I use it?

  8. Add multiple accounts support

    Hello

    We would really need multiple account support

    On browser you can open another mailbox by adding the address you have access behind /own/emailaddress

    For our company it would help us greatly.

    Thanks

  9. Bottom Menu Hangs Up After Viewing Attachment

    After viewing an attachment, the bottom menu becomes stuck and will not allow the screen to scroll back to the top. Buttons located at the top of screen are not accessible.

  10. Too easy to delete!

    It's way too easy to accidentally delete messages. There should be a confirmation that we really want to delete a message. I have gone back into my deleted messages and tried to move it back to my inbox but it's not in either box.

  11. Updating OWA actually updates

    After a few time of updating messages OWA notifies you that there are new messages, but fails to show the new messages.

  13. Need notifications for existing unread emails

    Red notification circle does not show existing unread emails, it shows a notification when an email is received but once the app is opened the notification disappears whether the email has been read or not, this (seemingly simple bug) needs to be urgently addressed.

  14. Multiple emails delete at one shot

    This is the most basic and important feature and am surprised it is not available in OWA. Can't expect this to be so lame

  16. Bulk deletion

    How can I empty my trash (Deleted emails) and my junk folders with one or two clicks? Also the "Select All" option only selects few items at a time and NOT all items

  17. Ability to collapse Inbox subfolders so that it is a shorter scroll to access Sent, Drafts, etc.

    As with the email conversation expand/collapse arrows, allow the same functionality with parent folders and subfolders. For example - I have 50+ subfolders under my "Inbox" and I have to scroll, and scroll, and scroll to get down to access an email in my "Sent" file.
